Each time we look at these pictures, we travel back to the beginning of our past wedding seasons. One of our favorites, this amazing destination wedding in Kalamata, still has our heart. Kalamata is a fantastic town by the sea, with beautiful architecture and lots of history. It was no surprise that our adventurous couple chose it to tie the knot. On a sunny clear day, Marilena and Jeff became husband and wife. People traveled from all over the world to attend their wedding and the atmosphere was very emotional. Friends and family filled the air with love and together with Marilena and Jeff created the most beautiful wedding story.
The city of Kalamata is famous for its infinite olive trees and consequently the olive oil! So, we knew from the first moment that we should use olive branches for our decoration. Also, olive trees are a symbol of peace, unity, and victory. Moreover, the couple’s favorite hobby is traveling, so we knew the concept of the wedding from the beginning. The stationery and the details of the wedding were based on this concept. The invitation was a boarding pass, the favors were compasses and the sitting chart was a big map. Adventurous, right?
Our team created the floral arrangements with summer flowers, hydrangeas, peonies, and olive leaves. The combination of the silvery green of the olive leaves and the fresh summer flowers was to die for!
THE WEDDING DAY
For her destination wedding in Kalamata, Marilena chose a fairytale tulle dress and a pair of teal high heels! She was the epitome of class and style. Jeff wore a smoking tuxedo; classic and elegant choice! Jeff and Marilena said their vows under a hydrangea decorated arch, making everyone tear with happiness.
At the wedding reception, everything was elegant and summery. We chose little olive oil welcome gifts for all our guests. Furthermore, we created a dessert table that everyone raved about! We filled it with macaroons and traditional Greek wedding treats! Of course, the modern wedding cake was the stuff of dreams! Our guests loved it!
THE WEDDING PARTY
The wedding party for this destination wedding in Kalamata was wild! Everyone danced and had the time of their lives! Moreover, people sang and partied till the morning! This was the perfect wedding celebration! We really loved this wedding! Marilena and Jeff are a couple we will never forget!
